    is the meal plan worth it? It seems very expensive?

    Hi Eric!

    That's a very good question and one, unfortunately, that I really can't answer.  It really depends on how your party likes to dine (Quick Service vs. Table Service) and what each member of the party might actually order in a particular restaurant.  I can tell you that some guests save a lot of money by being on a Disney Dining Plan, some only save a little, and some actually pay more.  I also have a recommendation.

    I suggest visiting the independent website AllEars.Net.  The team at All Ears does a great job keeping all of their information up to date.  There you can view the menus, including prices, for the various Quick Service and Table Service restaurants at Walt Disney World. With that information in hand, you make a determination of whether the Dining Plan would be a good option for you.

    Regardless of whether the Dining Plan makes sense, be sure to make Advanced Dining Reservations for any Table Service restaurants you would like to try!  ADRs can be made up to 180 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-DINE or online.

    Good luck with your decision!
